Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

Love the idea of using a pegboard to organize pots, pans and other kitchen items. This is great for people who have wall space but a lack of cabinetry. Not only is it functional, but it looks great too. The hanging items add a graphic element and become part of the decor. Form and function.

This beautifully organized vanity has a flip top that reveals a mirrored underside and built in compartments that neatly house makeup. Clear acrylic trays atop the vanity keep essentials in order.

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

This week’s beautifully organized space is from Caroline‘s tiny 475 sqft studio apartment. I love how she maximized storage potential by using over the door shoe racks to organize her collection of shoes. Don’t they look so pretty arranged by color?

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

Loving these beautifully organized kitchen shelves from the home of Alexx and Paul featured in issue 7 of Covet Garden. Particularly drawn to the repurposed similarly sized glass jars which hold spices idenitifed with handwritten labels. So perfectly imperfect -charming and homey :)

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

This week’s beautifully organized space is this closet from the latest issue of Lucky magazine:
how-to-basics-1-546
how-to-jeans-dilemma-546
Shelf organizers help keep handbags tidy and contained. Labeled shelves help distinguish between piles of jeans. A corkboard provides a space to post outfit inspiration.
how-to-foldables-sweaters-546
Sweaters are folded neatly by type in stacks no higher than 10 inches, with bulkiest pieces at the bottom of the pile to avoid an unstable top heavy formation.
how-to-hangables-546
Thin huggable hangers prevent garments from slipping and, unlike bulkier wooden hangers, don’t eat up valuable hanging space
how-to-shoes-546
A mounted wall rack concealed behind a lovely curtain takes advantage of a nook and holds shoes.
how-to-foldables-lingerie-546
Drawer dividers help keep delicate lingerie organized and prevent any snags from tangled bra hooks.
how-to-accessories-jewelery-546
Jewelry is kept untangled and organized in velvet jewelry trays.

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

This week’s beautifully organized space of the week is this closet from the home of Erica Cook of Moth Design, which houses her daily staples:

White Ikea frames showcase bags from some of her favorite trips and create a fun little feature wall.

A round white tray keeps all her perfumes organized and at the ready.

Clear Ikea Rationell Variera “spice racks” serve as drawer separators and keep her belts and scarves organized.
*Unfortunately the clear “spice racks” are a discontinued product (at least to my knowledge). I bought several to organize a variety of things in my own home several months ago and absolutely loved them. When I tried to go back for more, they were no longer in stock and was told by an Ikea employee that they had been discontinued :-(

Glass trays and other beautiful containers hold jewelry, watches and sunglasses. An Ikea pant rack keeps her jeans easily accessible and allows her to see exactly what she has.

So chic, wouldn’t you agree?

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

This week’s beautifully organized space is from the home of fellow blogger Jen over at Organized Design.

Jen keeps everything in her Expedit bookcase contained, organized, and looking great by using matching labeled binders, magazine files, and white boxes she customized with gray stripes by using painter’s tape and craft paint.
